About self-management

Self-management isn’t a treatment. It is:

  • A personalized process for each person
  • A lifestyle approach to improve and complement healthcare
  • A proven practice that includes:
    • Knowing how healthcare options and lifestyle choices work together
    • Making conscious decisions about activities that affect sleep, nutrition, energy and attitude
  • The National Institutes of Health and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine have published reports that highlight the critical role of self-management in helping people prevent, reduce, and cope with health issues and enhance overall quality of life.
    Premera Blue Cross and Premera Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alaska are independent licensees of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, and serve members located in Washington and Alaska. On behalf of Premera, MOBE is an independent provider delivering care management services to Premera members.
